Location is such an important component of just about anything. The right spot for an event can literally make all the difference. Nicole & Patrick's Hudson Valley wedding in Kingston New York absolutely nailed the locale part of the equation capitalizing on the mix of history meets modern that is the Hudson Valley. For the first part of their wedding day, the couple allowed the historic garden side to do the talking featuring stunning old world brick buildings to be the backdrop. Lush strings of greenery hang in the air, as flower clusters and escort cards swung in the wind. For their Hudson Valley wedding reception, the duo brought guests to the modern industrial event space that is the Senate Garage featuring exposed brick, mixed farm wood tables, mini potted succulents and Edison bulb light strands. The end result is a day that is wonderfully classic yet perfectly accented by chic romantic touches that make your head feel just the right kind of swoony. Those seeking a Hudson Valley wedding should take note, Nicole & Patrick's day is all kinds of divine.
I'll be the first to admit, I'm floored each and every time I come across a couple who has known one another & dated since childhood. Its such an incredible thing to me, to be seated next to your soulmate from the very start. Grace & Carlo are the sweetest example of just that, love that lasted from a very young age. Meeting all the way back in kindergarten, going on a 'first date' in 8th grade, its fair to say these two evolved through life together in such a beautiful way. For their Winnipeg wedding, the duo opted for the stylish Fort Garry Hotel as their backdrop, allowing their modern romantic day to bloom. Details like suspended geometric shapes, lush dripping greens, a candle light reception and marble accenting might be the elements that catch your eye, its the couple's incredible wedding fashion that does it for us! A Pronovias wedding dress that fits as if it were quite literally made right upon Grace and groom fashion that is right out of GQ, I dare you not to eat up it all up. True there are many things to love about this Winnipeg wedding, it is however the portrait sessions by wedding photographer Sambajoy in the greenhouse that leave us love struck, though, its pretty hard to beat the classroom bridal party sequence! Much love for this incredibly stylish Winnipeg wedding, classic, ever so romantic and all kinds of timeless perfection.
Fantasy weddings can be a truly magical thing. In the wrong hands, a bit of a cacophony to the eyes at times. In the right hands, a beautiful source of inspiration. This styled Wonderland wedding is everything right about pulling from a storybook world. Taking a cue from simple details like colors & decor, the skilled wedding pros created an elevated take to the Wonderland wedding. Set at Wonderland In The Woods, wedding photographer Sabrina Hall Photography, captured each little detail that makes this a true beauty, all starting with an incredible dreamy blue wedding dress from Blanc de Blanc! By focusing on just one aspect of the story, the team pulled together a thoughtful tablescape of tea cups, bell jar installations, and blue glassware from Borrow Rentals that was all kinds of perfection. Florist Nikki’s Perfect Petal Designs, inspired by Alice's garden surroundings, created gorgeous floral arrangements that had structure yet featured loose tendrils giving a slightly reclaimed by nature feel. The end result is a take on a Wonderland wedding that is refined & elegant yet wonderfully magical!

There are few things that, from a creative standpoint, get me out of bed in the morning. Rather I should say, there are few things that lock me snuggled into bed as I dreamily glide through each image, entranced by what I see. Moody, earthy artful yumminess is certainly on that short list. When I stumbled upon Australian wedding photographer Ine Ertvaag Photography styled elopement along the Australian coastline, you can best believe I didnt budge one inch out of bed. In fact I snuggled down hard as I walked through each and every frame of the elopement. The brilliance to the way that Ine captured such a simple (lacking in details :0 ) elopement is the very fingerprint to why, if dont value you wedding photography, true good wedding photography, you're a bloody fool. I wasn't there, but you better believe I was standing right next to them as I leafed through the story. I felt my own hair a complete mess, pushed around with reckless abandon by the wind. My eyes ached with each adjustment to the fading light. My own skin felt of the very same goosebumps Ine captured as the tendrils of the Gwendolynne wedding dress beat against her skin. True, honest, & worthy wedding photography is not about being able to look back at images and think to yourself, yup thats is what happened. Its about seeing even a solitary image and feeling as if it comes alive...
